Beautiful things happen when you distance yourself from the negative.

There is no reason whatsoever to engage in petty drama.

Drama does nothing but drain you and shift your attention to the negative.

People who create drama do so either because they are immature/insecure, or because they try to create attention, and feed off that attention.

So… embrace a drama free life.

And have a look at these 30 quotes to get inspired…

Do you attract drama?

Drama is bad. Drama is a waste of time that doesn’t even feel good.

But as human beings, we are mysteriously drawn by negative things. Our mind in particular is somehow fascinated by complex challenges, bad news, horror movies, and so on.

For most of us, things that are perfectly peaceful are just… boring.

When we are in a state of peace, when things work, when there is nothing to complain about — we tend to lose awareness of that, and then look for things that don’t work, that we can complain about, even if imaginary.

People who self sabotage are especially prone to this. But it’s not just them, it’s human nature.

The truth is that most of us are drawn by drama; we know it’s bad, but we can’t resist the temptation.

Kind of like watching a scene from a horror movie even though we know it’s terrifying and it won’t let us sleep at night.

I think it’s important to be aware of this mental process.

You want to be aware that our mind is programmed to like negative things, for lack of a better word, and then resist that.

Drama is toxic, and you don’t need any of that in your life. Whenever you’re around people who create drama, don’t give in. Your mental health will thank you.

How to deal with dramatic people

Don’t give them energy. Don’t give them your attention.

If you’re somehow forced to listen to them, or if you think it’s rude not to, then don’t be too involved.

Give brief answers, and don’t comment on what they say. The more involved you are, the more they’ll do it.

In an ideal world, people who want to create drama… could not create drama, just because nobody would ever listen to them. People would ignore them.

And as for the worst types — abusive narcissists and toxic people — feel free to block them or just cut them out of your life.

It’s not immature to block toxic people. Well, usually it’s not. It’s simply a sign that you care about your mental health.

Remember — people who create drama can do so only when others give them attention. If you ignore them, they are powerless. Kind of like a fire that dies out when there is no fuel left.
